Several pitchers out of the Clearwater Threshers bullpen caught our attention last season. Likely they will be pitching at AA Reading or higher when the 2020 season gets started.
Lefty reliever Zach Warren received the most notice when he struck out the side in one of his outings in a Grapefruit League game. Another lefty, Keylan Killgore showed major league stuff out of the Threshers pen last season and should get a look with Reading to start the season.
On the right side, Tyler Carr stood out and finished the season with Reading striking out six in 2.2 innings in his one appearance at AA. Austin Ross went 5-1 with 4 saves out of the Threshers pen. Michael Gomez was impressive in his 10 relief appearances with Clearwater to end the season with a win and striking out 22 in 18.1 innings.
